A Family Heirloom
Since yesterday was the unofficial start of summer, I thought it was appropriate to post a little bit about something that we all love about the season -- the flowers! I just love all the colorful posies that appear in spring and early summer. Irises, cosmos, and impatiens are some of my favorite blooms but I have a soft spot for roses, especially the roses at my house. I have seen them bloom almost every year for as long as I can remember. My great-grandmother passed before I was born but she had these roses in her flower garden, my grandmother had them in hers, and my mother has them planted outside our house. Hopefully, when I have a home of my own, I'll have a space for these.
I don't have a clue as to what these roses are called, all I know is that they are very fragrant and very hardy and apparently disease resistant. These past few years the plant was brown with no leaves but this year it's back with green leaves and beautiful, baby pink double roses. I love these plants and always look forward to them every year.
What are some of your favorite flowers? Do you have roses? Do you have any green thumbs in the family? I'd love for you to share in the comments below!
